what you do today ....

my last scheduled post for now
when i get home i will be making some more cards ..... as sue wilson publishes one every day, i still have quite a few to catch up with!!
this is made as per sue's instructions using the heartfelt creations die.
i was a bit lacking in sentiments that fit the space!
i could never have seen this layout just by looking at the die!!
sue's eye is just spectacular.
i shall probably make more of these in different colours, as the card is coloured using distress inks not pre-coloured card.

merry christmas

this simple sue wilson design is made using the justrite background stamp in 3 layers, colouring each layer with distress inks, leaving the top white.
a spellbinders poinsettia finishes it off beautifully.
i made 4 of these as they were very simple to make.

thank you

 ....catching up with posting my makes....
a lovely, simple sue wilson design
the frame is something different in technique ... colouring a piece of card before die cutting, with various distress inks then stamping and clear embossing.  a darker ink over the top highlights the stamped image [justrite flourish background stamp]
a nice greeny-bluey-teal finish!
i have another 45 cards to deliver to my charity!
[less 1 i just gave to my doctor to say thankyou!]
